Top 10 student city in the UK (QS Best Cities 2019)

8 — 08 —Undergraduate A city like no other 2020


A city like no other There really is something for everyone in Newcastle. It’s famous for its vibrant nightlife with late-night cafes, live music and afterhours cultural events. One in six people in Newcastle is a student, helping create the city’s vibrant and friendly atmosphere. With an enviable reputation as one of the UK’s favourite student cities, Newcastle also boasts world-class sport, shopping, and arts right in the city centre, as well as award-winning beaches just a short journey away. There’s no shortage of things to do and you only have to look at the Quayside, with its seven bridges, art galleries, international music venues and thriving restaurants and bars, to see why so many students affectionately refer to the city as their second home.

Getting around the city is simple, with a comprehensive bus and cycle network and Metro rail system connecting all areas of the city and region. Newcastle also has an international airport and ferry terminal, meaning the city is well connected to the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond. Even the capital is just a one-hour flight or a three-hour train ride away. This makes getting home for the holidays or using the city as a base to explore further afield really easy. Your money will go further too, with student rents and the cost of living amongst the lowest in UK, so you’ll have more to spend on the things you love.
